MAY 2017 Classes & Specials

Hello Friends~

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  It's May, and we have some fun things coming to you this month.  Our Seasonal Expressions 2 is now LIVE with so many fun Paper Packs, Complements, embellishments, Thin-Cuts and Stamp of the Month sets inside!  View it online HERE.
Thanks to each of you who helped to make last month's "15 Minute Memories" campaign such a success!  Several of you purchased the 50% off Cut Above layout kits that had never scrapbooked before, and I've received some nice feedback.  Even scrapbookers who hadn't tried the Cut Above Layout kits before found them easy and rewarding (myself included) to assemble! Preserving memories in that!

Feel free to share this blog post with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I love to reward YOU too!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued friendship and support...I truly do appreciate YOU!
